Walter Gretzky Street Hockey Tournament




Brantford is well-known as a “hockey town” and I guess you could say that our family is known for its love of hockey too! Our family is proud to announce that going forward the Lung Association will be hosting the event on our behalf, a partnership that has blossomed over the past 13 years after the death of our dear Phyllis.

I personally would like to invite you and your team mates to an exciting weekend of hockey, the old fashioned way – ‘street hockey at its finest”, and we don’t even have to move the net for the passing cars!

We are celebrating our 13th annual Walter Gretzky Street Hockey Tournament from May 31 to June 2, 2019 at the Steve Brown Sports Complex at Lions Park Brantford.

We are the current World record holder for hosting the largest street hockey tournament in the world, and anticipate that this year will bring another great weekend of hockey and fun as well. We are encouraging the  tourists to visit our community while they are here and take in  our many area attractions, great food at our restaurants, relaxing stay at our area hotels, and of course our new Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.

The weekend is all in good fun, with lots of competition and hockey skills. The proceeds from this weekend will be directed towards lung health research, research that is very close to the heart of the Gretzky family.

For further information, please contact Sandy Lee at the Lung Association 519-753-4682, Suite 255-245 King George Rd Brantford ON N3R 7N7; email:
